The WYC Boat of the Year Award
The Boat of the Year Award was donated to the Wayzata Yacht Club by Quiet World Sports in 1975. It is to award both excellence in achieving first place finishes and a participation award for sailing many races. It originally came from a time when the yacht club only had a few fleets, and at the end of the year they took the two or three leading skippers in each fleet and had a sail-off in Ensigns. As the club grew, it became difficult to get borrowed boats, so the sail-off was dropped and instead was given to the boat with the most first place finishes during the season.
Starting in the 1993 season, the first place finishes are weighted by the number of participants for that fleet in each race, and is awarded to the boat that accumulates the most points.
